A Green Interview Webcast Series on Ripple FX
RIPPLE FX is a spunky little start-up based in Little Anse, a tiny village on Isle Madame, where I live. I’ve been on a couple of their webcasts, and it’s been a lot of fun. So I jumped at the chance to do a six-week spin-off series,The Green Interview Webcast. We start next Monday, November 18th. Here’s the description:
RIPPLE FX is proud to host a six-week series of discussions with author, broadcaster and filmmaker Silver Donald Cameron, a long-time resident of Isle Madame. Silver Donald is currently Farley Mowat Chair in Environment at Cape Breton University. A second edition of Silver Donald’s classic book The Education of Everett Richardson has just been published. His twentieth book, Blood in the Water, a true-crime story from Isle Madame, will be published by Penguin next August.
For the past ten years, Silver Donald has been the host of www.TheGreenInterview.com, a subscription web site where he conducts long, in-depth interviews with green leaders from all over the world. The Green Interviews are also available in thousands of schools, universities and public libraries worldwide.
A Green Interview is normally about an hour long — but The Green Interview also publishes a short, free excerpt – a “teaser” – from each interview on its own web site, and also on YouTube. Each Green Interview webcast will begin with a teaser, followed by a discussion between Silver Donald and Dr. Catherine O’Brien, professor of education at CBU. Dr. O’Brien originated the concept of “sustainable happiness,” and is a Green Interviewee herself.
Here is the schedule:
